Yeah, I mean like, that's kinda different because like if a certain person uses an avvie that someone made for someone and you didn't ask the person who created it and just go ahead and use it then that's like stealing something and well like I'm not really thinking right, right now because it's 3:30 in the morning so I'm going to stop talking! xD

There are very complex laws around derivative works (imitations of other things, like if I drew my own version of Mickey Mouse on paper) and parodies.

For example, derivative works are not fully the creations of the person who made them. They can only be counted as that person's intellectual property to the extent that they are different from the original.

Examples:

1. A Miss Build-a-Bearville Pageant is based on Miss (insert location name here) such as Miss America, Miss France, and other national or regional Miss whatevers. If five people make Miss Build-a-Bearville pageants, they are likely to have arrived at the same idea by themselves.

2. The annual "50 Most Beautiful People" is posted in...err...whatever magazine does that (Time?) Three members of this site make "50 Most Beautiful Bears" or "[insert some number here] Most Beautiful Hairdos of Build-a-Bearville." They're imitating the magazine, not each other.

3. I go to the Bearywood Mall in Build-a-Bearville and I make a skirt that is pink with purple stars and a lavender paw belt. Someone else goes to the Bearywood Mall and makes a skirt that is almost exactly the same, because we both happen to like purple and pink clothing, and want skirts with stars and paw belts.

I run into this other person in the game, and both of us have characters wearing the same skirt. I can't say that she copied my skirt, because neither of us saw the other's until that moment.

4. I love Peter Gabriel music. Suppose that someone else on these forums also likes it.

Gabriel and his daughter come out with a new song, and we both hear it on the radio at different times in a week. Each of us makes a parody of this song and posts it to the forums. But neither of us read the other's parody before writing our own.
These are all really good Examples Rainribbon.
#2 Is People Magazine
#3 We both like purple. I bet we have some of the same clothes I would be flattered if someone copied me though
#4 Yes I like Peter Gabriel music too
Some people are quick to say they were copied. Unfortunately it happens in real life too. With the internet, we have all kinds of information and such at our fingertips. It makes copying easier unfortunately.

Woah Danica, calm down! No one is being mean to you, and there is no reason to type in all caps, and also, you were not the first person to think of it on here, there were probably some people who had heard it in real life but never did anything with it on here. So no need to go crazy and be mean.
And I totally agree RainRibbon.
